    General advice for studying physiotherapy.

    Taping
    Hi all,
    I applied for university to study BSc physiotherapy but was unsuccessful at the interview stage. I set myself up for disappointment by only applying to the uni in my home city. I was wondering if you had any advice in relation to physio apprenticeships or other pathways to becoming a physio as i have been set on physiotherapy since i started my GCSE’s.
    Thanks!

    Must have Kinesiology Taping DVD
    Hi,
    sorry to hear that your application was unsuccessful. That sucks.
    As to having better chances. I don't know what the required criteria were or reasons as to why other applicants had more positive outcomes.

    There is no apprenticeship for physiotherapists. But there are related jobs: physiotherapy assistant, allied health care support worker, receptionist in a physio clinic, ....
    As to other pathways - they all go through university. Does the uni in your hometown offer a MSc graduate entry (or pre reg) programme for physiotherapy? This would mean to do a 3 year BSc in a related field - and your uni would be able to tell you which of the programmes are suitable - and then add a 2 year accelerated Master's degree in physio.

    Good luck,
    Fyzzio
